MICROCURRENT FACIAL REJUVENATION

                                                                               Love your skin.

 

Non-Surgical Face Lift

Microcurrent provides a gentle, effective and non-invasive approach to a holistic, anti-aging protocol.

Using very gentle electrical currents, this procedure works with the body at a cellular level to reduce inflammation and swelling, relax or tone facial muscles, increase collagen production, and increase the production of ATP in the cells.

Due to the relaxing or toning effect on the muscles of the face, a "muscular re-education" occurs. The result is healthy, youthful skin - lifted and firmed, reduced puffiness, and diminished lines and wrinkles. All without injections or causing damage.

 

WHAT IS MICROCURRENT?

Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation uses very gentle electrical currents to stimulate, at a cellular level, tissue healing. Using an Accu-O-Matic machine,  wands are applied to the face in various areas, allowing the current to run between the two points of contact, completing the circuit.

The intensity of the electrical current is very mild - a maximum of 0.6 milliamps. As a comparison, a TENS machine used in physiotherapy will use a current of up to 100 milliamps.

WHAT MAKES A MICROCURRENT FACIAL UNIQUE?

Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is non-invasive, and very gentle. Many cosmetic procedures cause damage to the skin and underlying tissues, which then initiates the healing response. This response leads to a reduction in the signs of aging.


The advantage of Microcurrent is that no damage or tissue injury is done, and healing is stimulated immediately.

CAN I GET A MICROCURRENT FACIAL IF I HAVE HAD BOTOX® OR FILLERS?

Yes, you can, HOWEVER, the timing of the procedures is very important.

Microcurrent can be done at least 2 weeks after BOTOX®, injections or fillers have been done. In the case of fillers, the techniques used during a session can move the filler out of the area of injection. 


In the case of BOTOX®, microcurrent stimulates the shortening or lengthening of a muscle that is not able to move.  Please reach out to discuss your unique needs, and I can formulate a plan for your best results.

 

WHO CAN'T GET A MICROCURRENT FACIAL?

Even though Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation is very gentle and safe, there are times when it is not recommended, or is contraindicated. Of course, the better your health going into the session, and the less damage to your skin, the quicker you will see results.

Seizure disorders (because the optic nerve is stimulated), the presence of an electrical implant (pacemaker),  and pregnancy are contraindications. Any medical treatments which cause the skin to be fragile, such as chemotherapy or radiation, are also contraindicated.

If you are unsure, please contact me to discuss your unique situation.  All communication with me is confidential.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?

Before your appointment, you will have completed your health history form - this information is required to ensure microcurrent is appropriate and safe for you.


During the first session, your health history is reviewed, your makeup will be removed, and your face cleansed. (Basically, you are getting a mini-facial)


Before and after pictures are taken, and the treatment is conducted in the comfort of a quiet room while you are laying on a massage table. The treatment itself consists of applying the wands to the face in a variety of techniques and electrical settings, depending of the goal of the technique. A first appointment usually takes up to 90 minutes.

Follow-up sessions will take 45-60 minutes. A standard protocol is used, but will be modified to ensure you get the best results for your concerns. (e.g. lines around your mouth, hooded eyelids, etc)

ARE RESULTS VISIBLE IMMEDIATELY?

Yes. In the first session, pictures are taken before the procedure, and after one side of the face is done. This allows a comparison between the two sides of the face, but also a "before" and "after" comparison.  Comparison pictures are also taken after a course of sessions, for example, if a package of 12 is purchased.

Much like a fitness regime, consistency is key to long-term, sustainable results.

 

IS THIS SERVICE COVERED UNDER MY MASSAGE THERAPY BENEFITS?

Unfortunately, this modality is not part of the massage therapy "scope of practice". Because of this, receipts will be provided, but cannot be submitted to your private insurance.

DO YOU GUARANTEE RESULTS?

Results will vary based on your current health and condition of your tissue. For this reason, a phone consultation is required before an appointment is booked, to ensure you are a good candidate for microcurrent.


That being said, no representation or warranty is provided concerning the results of Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation.
